Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG-Planeta

Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: Planeta have vineyards all over Italy but Vittoria is a small town (and 'DOCG' region) in the south east of the island, where the island's main grape (Nero D'Avola) is blended with the local Frappato to make a fresh and juicy style, in contrast to the heavy reds for which Sicily has traditionally been known


Grape Variety: 60% Nero D'Avola, 40% Frappato
Producer: Planeta have long been the most dynamic medium-to-large sized winery in Sicily. Having gained fame for international varieties first, they have now turned their focus back onto local and other Italian grapes
Cellar Potential: Drink young
Food Match: Under-stated fruit with just a hint of that typically Italianate edge and bite. Brilliant with light pasta dishes
Old Bridge Rating: Rare to find a southern Italian red with such lightness of touch. It's a subtle style, not an obvious crowd-pleaser at first taste, but simply brilliant with a lunchtime snack
